I work across the street from the Prudential building and this is the view from my window, and I am so grateful for such a beautiful skyline. The building in the center is the new Berklee building, which I have watched being built over the last year or so, I feel kind of attached to it in a weird way, if that makes sense. At about 3 O clock the lights falls on the off white building in perfect colors. I had to photograph it. I don’t generally consider myself a photographer, but I thought this came out pretty well. Then I decided I wanted to do something special to it. So I tried a tilt shift tutorial, which makes it look like a toy model. Find it here-http://photography.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tilt-shift-photoshop–photo-3327 It really felt like a proper project; changing the levels, curves, throwing in lens blurs, saturation masks, and exposure, really kind of fun.
First the Original
After the tutorial, and some other general modifications.
